If you had the opportunity to throw yourself head first down an ice slide would you do it?
Because I have it, and I want to. REALLY REALLY BAD.
Rosemarie’s university is starting a bobsleigh and skeleton sliding club. She forwarded me the info knowing I would be interested in it (that is the understatement of the year) and I went up to SFU on Tuesday night to go to the information meeting with her. Officially I can’t join the team because I am not a SFU student, but they will still help me and I can still go with them. They’ll teach us what to do and everything.
The only problem is the cost, not surprisingly.
Surprisingly though is that it’s not actually THAT expensive.
The problem is that I thought it would be so I already decided to spend money on going home at Christmas instead. Doh. Now I need to see if I can scrounge up a few hundred more dollars so I can zoom up to 140 km/h head first too.
Ever since the meeting I’ve been thinking of ways to save some cash. No new clothes, no Christmas presents, no snacks, eat only Mr. Noodles, etc etc.
We’ll see we’ll see. I need to go over the ol’ budget again this weekend.
ONLY 7 YEARS UNTIL 2018 OLYMPICS. MUST START TRAINING NOW.
